Unlike many of Wings Over’s competitors, all meat is fresh, not frozen. Furthemore, Wings Over makes its food to order, not in advance. The menu includes exciting fare like wings (with or without bones), chicken tenders, sandwiches, ribs, and French fries. Sauces are a big part of the appeal: diners can choose from buffalo, BBQ, teriyaki, garlic, honey mustard, and oriental sesame flavors.
Full Franchise Information
Wings Over locations do not have dining areas; all food is either delivered or available for take out. The college crowd is especially receptive to having wings delivered directly to their dorm rooms.
Wings Over offers a rare opportunity to potential franchisees: a chance to work for a week at an existing Wings Over to see if it is the right business they want to work in full time. Those who want to move forward will undergo about a month of training, focusing on leadership, organization, and procedures.
Wings Over Franchise Opportunities - History
Without the necessary capital to develop a full restaurant, Harold Tramazzo and Patrick Daly created a wings delivery business at the University of Massachusetts in 1999. Finding a fairly different, yet desirable niche, the company thrived, and today there are about 30 Wings Over stores, primarily located on the Eastern side of the United States.
